away, i can talk about the taxes. anyone can take a look at their january pace of and see the difference. i would even begin to tell you what it means to a small- business owner. instead of being rewarded for saving, for operating reserves and putting aside for reading day, those are taken away. over one had 50 people working across the country to compete with the big companies to also do what i do. i have to provide very good services, very good health care and benefits, so i can track challenge. my check for my premiums today out of my come to any rigid out of my company is $21,000 per month. offor my premiums today out my company is $21,000 per month. revenue, thatonal is all going to hit the bottom line. shrugged? imposing regulations, taxes, additional policies that stifle creativity and do not reward could be hit years, i could go into bankruptcy, go into debt, overspend, i would get a bailout. in seven years i can start all over again. i did not think those are the kinds of things we need to reward. we want people to have this 23 million small businesses to continue

dream. [applause] we can change the tax code so that loopholes for special interests are eliminated. we can streamline, simplify the tax code and put more money in the pockets of families.

[applause] we have all heard these policy issues before, but we need to start talking about these employment and family issues. that is the way we are going to reach men and women, when we start speaking from our heart as well as our head. that is how we will bring about a new, modern, conservative division to america -- conservative vision to america. [applause] the second way we need to modernize is with technology. for a moment, let's consider two .mericas you have washington, d.c., the center of government, and you have silicon valley along with the pacific northwest, the center of technology innovation. if you have an iphone but are still usin

so far, everything we voted on has been anything but tax reform and pro-jobs legislation. the energy to power an american renaissance is right below our feet. west virginia is blessed with abundant natural resources, and more than that, an army of great men and women willing to extract it. pursuing environmental policy is based on unproven science is the wrong path -- policies based on unproven science is the wrong path. [applause]finally, at home i'm working to empower students by detailing the bureaucracy that has prohibited positive education reform for decades. revitalization is predicated on leadership. the societal problems dragging our country down are not new. they are magnified during economic downturn. as conservatives, we have to lead by example. my mother always told me, you can't stop through legislation. it has to come from the heart. the westery day in virginia legislature to impart the tenets of servitude as him to everyone who has been tasked to lead my great state. you'd be surprised how much have in common with people, even when they're on the other sid

that was $12 trillion ago. also, the federal government has raised more money via income taxes in its history and this is under the evil george bush tax cut, which proves, by the way, that that lowering taxes brings more money into the federal government. thank you. the president says we don't have a long-term debt crisis but when there is discussion going on with republican leadership he is pushing to raise taxes. if we don't have a debt problem hen why do you want to raise taxes? george stephanopoulos' follow-up question was so tough. >> i was given the microphone because my voice doesn't carry or because of the symbolism. i'm going to put -- i'm taking a wild leap here. i'm going to put this panel down as skeptical about the current president is that right? >> that might be right. >> don't start now. >> i think it is interesting when you watch the politics of what president obama is doing in that interview. i think everyone in this room when you talk to squert -- conservative activityists that everyone thinks there is a problem and there needs to be a balance in four years or 10 years. the

dollar out of every three they earn to washington and federal income and social security taxes. if they don't owe anything at the end of the year, it is because they already had it taken out of their paycheck. they don't live on dividends. odd thatlly so on -- they expect the government to align with their interests? morest spent $1 billion, than our side has ever had to sell its case. for all that money, we could not find a language to tell enough americans why our conservative policies would work in their lives. we begin the first republicans since the 1930 posture yes we did not talk about middle-class tax relief, the first in my lifetime who did not have the self-confidence to talk about how our policies reduce the poverty and lift the poor out of dependency. the first who did not seem to get in this competitive world, education or muddy the common defense. is it any surprise we were the first -- is it a surprise to see the number of conservatives fall, the number of liberals arise on our watch? here is the good news. i think we are going to fix it. fixing it begins with so

out and share that conservative message of liberty and less government and lower taxes and individual responsibility. it is time we all stop preaching to the choir. let's grow. [applause] america already has one party that is expert at pitting groups against one another. we will never win a contest of identity politics. ee have to believe in america xceptionalism that no one is guaranteed success the everyone is guaranteed an equal opportunity at success. [applause] the greatest lie that the liberals tell is that government is the way to realize this. there is a reason that washington d.c. is an island of prosperity and it's a nation mired. the more it picks winners and losers, the more crony capitalists win, the more the rest of us lose. whether it is clean energy or free obama phones or prophylactics -- if he did not have a team of lobbyists in dc you are not at the table. you are on the menu. [applause] if mrs. thatcher with us here today she would remind as there is a big difference between being pro-business and being pro-free market. it is time for we, the people, to break out o

mechanism for taking care of the poor. this is one of the reasons that we give tax deductions to churches. because they do that. why is the government trying to duplicate what they are supposed to be doing. we need to think smartly about the ways we use our resources and use our money. in 2009, 40 of the wealthiest families in america pledged to give away health of their wealth to charity. go someplace else in the world and ask for the of the wealthiest families to give away their wealth. they will look at you like you have six heads. this is the phenomena of america. it is not the government's responsibility. it is our responsibility as citizens. [cheers and applause] as we are talking about fairness, let's talk about taxes. me --eople criticize criticized me at the prayer breakfast for bringing up god and the bible. it is a prayer breakfast, right? i do not understand that. if got things proportionality is clear come who are we to say it is unfair? the minute you begin to deviate away from proportionality, you begin to inject your own philosophy. that is always going to leave you in one

's a serious blow to your budget -- like getting hit with a new tax coming right out of your pocket. over the past four years, as part of our all-of-the-above energy strategy, we've taken steps to soften that blow by making sure our cars use less gas. we've put in place the toughest fuel economy standards in our history so that by the middle of the next decade, our cars will go twice as far on a gallon of gas. over the life of a new car, the average family will save more than $8,000 at the pump. but the only way we're going to break this cycle of spiking gas prices for good is to shift our cars and trucks off of oil for good. that's why, in my state of the union address, i called on congress to set up an energy security trust to fund research into new technologies that will help us reach that goal. here's how it would work. much of our energy is drawn from lands and waters that we, the public, own together. so i'm proposing that we take some of our oil and gas revenues from public lands and put it towards research that will benefit the public, so that we can support american ingenuity wit

defense. the majority are in favor of limited government and fewer taxes. [applause] thesked if you approved of job the president is doing. and whether or not you approve of the job republicans in congress are doing. last year, president obama had a slight bump in his popularity among this group. this year, the numbers have gone back to where they belong. i still want to meet the 2% who said they approve of us -- approve of his job. last year, the republicans in congress for a 50-50 split. the truth of the matter is that this group or this audience is not convinced the republicans in congress are doing the job they need to do. for the congressional leaders, they need to pay attention to that. then we asked some questions about the budget and how we should fix the budget mess. shock and surprise, we should accomplish it by spending cuts. surprisingly, 16% said we should raise taxes and cut spending. obviously, they did not hear coulter -- ann coulter's speech about what happened last time we agree to spending cuts. he thought we should do targeted cuts and not across the board cuts.

to coming out of jimmy carter and following the same policies of out of control debt, taxes, regulation. in facingreagan came that stagnation. he implemented policies the exact opposite of barack obama. 1979 to 1983, economic growth was zero. 0.8%. obama did not learn the lesson from reagan that if he wants to do you know, if president obama had followed the reagan policy, and we had seen identical growth that president reagan saw, inheriting the same lousy economy that barack obama did, did you know that today we would have 7 million additional new jobs in america? let me help make that more concrete. 7 million new jobs is the equivalent of getting a job to every man, woman, and child in chicago, houston, philadelphia, and boston. that's what we're talking about. [applause] and the stagnation under president obama doesn't follow uniformly. if you happen to be an environmental lawyer, you're doing great right now. the people who are hurting the most are those who are struggling in the least well-off amongst us. hispanicsident obama, unemployment climbed to 10%. african-american unemploy
